WHAT IS THE GATEWAY PROGRAMME? Gateway is a flexible, individualised learning and work placement programme designed to work together with in-school learning in order to assist students' career goals. Acceptance onto the programme is through an application process which includes an interview with the Gateway Coordinator.
There are two parts to the Gateway Programme:
Learning: Standards gained by in-school learning, external short courses and/or individualised self-directed learning packages with support from tertiary providers, industry specialists and the Gateway Coordinator. Standards listed below are an EXAMPLE ONLY.
Work Placement: Students will attend a work placement, in an industry of their choice, for one day per week during school term times, for between 2 to 10 weeks.
